Where Does Shungite Come From?

Updated: Aug 7, 2020

We are PROUD to provide you with what would consider the best Shungite products. Shungite comes from only ONE place in the world Shunga Village in Karelia Region of Russia, at the Zazhoginsky Deposit. This is where the stone get it's name, Shungite.


Believe it or not it was formed when a meteorite hit the region millions of years ago. This helped in creating an crater that filled with water and microscopic life forms. This is the cool part and what makes Shungite SUPER unique. Over time, the life forms decomposed, which helped form carbon-rich deposits that eventually crystallized and then became shungite!


The famous mini lake, Lake Onega is polluted. Interestingly enough, the water in this lake is safe to drink BECAUSE it is purified by the Shungite bed that is sits under.



Shungite is believed to have the ability to neutralize and absorb dangerous frequencies from EMF radiation. The reason that Shungite is able to do this is due to the fullerenes inside.

Nearly NO other material in the world contain these fullerenes, which are hollow, pure carbon, molecules. These unique molecules are what scientists believe give shungite the ability to block EMF radiation. In 1996 the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded when it was discovered that Shungite had the properties of Fullerenes. Shungite has the rare molecular formations of C60, Carbon Fullerenes. 

I hope you've just been mind blown, this little rock is quite a LARGE force field!

Have a GREAT day! Carly The Shungite Shop
